pre 1990 I would agree but since then it has become Disneyland north and lost so much of its character. Man I loved hanging out in the City back in the 80's. Great Dead shows and just an amaziing alternative reality experience, like no where else in North America. Too bad they had to go and sterilize the whole place. I mean a dog park in Washington Square? Family entertainment in Times Square and Bryant Park...that used to be the Rastafari guantlet...the customer got to pick which bag they wanted to buy while on the way to the airport. I loved old, dirty, scarey NYC,or as we used to call it "The cop free zone" where you didn't have to look over your shoulder expectng some bored cop to be hassling you about smoking a doob on the street corner as they had real crime to deal with. I remmeber some amazing Halloween Parades in the Village. I need a Momouns fix badly.

I live in Seattle now and the only best we have is:

Vancouver BC has the best Chinese food in North America, NO DOUBT! Even Squamish has better Chinese food than anything you'll find in the USA.
